Note: The bridge crossing of Panther Branch at the Montgomery County Preserve is currently inaccessible to the public. There is no alternative crossing at this time, though we are working to restore access. The Montgomery County Preserve Trailhead remains open. All other parts of the trail are accessible (weather permitting).


History of the Spring Creek Nature Trail

The Spring Creek Nature Trail project began with a public need for a connected, natural-surface trail that catered to multiple trail user groups. To address this desire, Bayou Land Conservancy partnered with Texas Parks & Wildlife, Greater Houston Off Road Biking Association (GHORBA), The Woodlands Township, The Howard Hughes Corporation, and both Montgomery and Harris County to build the Spring Creek Nature Trail.


The Spring Creek Nature Trail is a 14-mile, natural-surface path that follows Spring Creek and was built largely by volunteers. It is open to hikers, bikers, birders, and other nature lovers. Experience the gentle meanders, wetland ponds, and abundant wildlife that Spring Creek has to offer on the Spring Creek Nature Trail.
